Found this place by accident and so happy we did! Excellent food and well priced. Stopped for lunch and returned again a few days later. All freshly made. Delicious. Thrilled to see gluten free options. Highly recommend and will return on our next visit to Tofino.

This place opens at 7AM, so if you are an "early" riser, it's a good place to start. A lot of locals start out here... The coffee is excellent, and they have a nice selection of baked goods. We had coffee and a Tofino "Nanaimo bar". It was quite nice! Their bulletin board is a good place to see upcoming... More

The multigrain toast to the breakfast taste great. Also the coffee is very good. It is no wonder that there is always a queue.

Common Loaf is a lovely place to stop for a coffee, snack, or meal. The many choices of baked products are freshly made and absolutely delicious. The seating area is cosy and the staff are friendly. I recommend stopping by for a bite and then grabbing a loaf to go as well.
